    Boatest.com VXR

    Boatest's VXR review is out. It gives an in depth view of the ski.

    Thought I would share for those who haven't seen it.

    Yamaha VXR (2011-) Test Result Highlights

    * Top speed for the Yamaha VXR (2011-) is 68.4 MPH (110.1 KPH), burning 13.5 gallons per hour (GPH) or 51.1 liters per hour (LPH).

    * Best cruise for the Yamaha VXR (2011-) is 38.0 MPH (61.2 KPH), and the boat gets 7.74 miles per gallon (MPG) or 3.29 kilometers per liter (KPL), giving the boat a cruising range of 111 miles (178.64 kilometers).

    * Tested power is 1 x Yamaha 1812cc, four cylinder, four-stroke.

    * Time from 0 to 30 of the Yamaha VXR (2011-) is 1.8 sec. seconds.


    That's VERY impressive fuel mileage. For comparison, a SeaDoo RXT-X at WOT burns 18 GHP, for the SAME SPEED. And, cruise for the T-X is around the same speed as the VXR, but gets 5 mpg(I've tested this many, many times)!!!

    Now, if I could just get a chance to get my hands on it, to give it a "proper" test ride, life would be good.

    I've used the boattest.com fuel mileage/burn chart for my 2008 SeaDoo RXT-X and tested it out, and their calculations were dead on with my GPS. So their data, in my opinion, is pretty good.

    That was the first thing that jumped out at me. THat is insane fuel mileage for a 70mph ski.

    I dont understand why this ski is so magical, its hardly short (longer than an RXP-X, bit shorter than an FZR)

    Its only marginally lighter than the RXP-X

    eg
    RXP-X 121" 774lb
    FZR 132.7" 807lb
    VXR 128.7" 728lb

    Also the FXHO gets pretty much the same consumption.
    So what's new?

    ^ It's a 70 mph naturally aspirated ski. I for one think that is pretty amazing.
